In an emotional post in February 2022, Martin revealed to her followers that she’d undergone a full hysterectomy and had been diagnosed with advanced stomach cancer. 

She wrote: ‘I’m not only thankful for the treatment but for the around the clock care and unwavering support my husband and sister have provided me. I tear up just writing how much I love them both.

She added: ‘I have reached a depth of love for all of you that I had no idea existed.’
